While all other departments were losing the bet due to demonetization affect, liquor business has absolutely no problem with respect to the revenue. It seems that most of the liquor consumers in Andhra Pradesh accustomed themselves to use the digital methods of payment rather than going for the cash based transactions. Even the liquor shops upgraded themselves to card based transactions.
Chandra Babu Naidu himself mentioned that except for the liquor business, other businesses were not adopting themselves to the digital transactions. He mentioned that other small scale businesses too should go for the digital way and the AP government is asking people to encourage cash less transactions. For now, AP government will get its share of taxes from the liquor department.
Necessity is the mother of all inventions and looks like the necessity made liquor consumers to adopt themselves to the card based transactions. As majority of the revenue comes from this domain, we can expect AP to be on safe side with respect to money.
